Thief – Map of Lost Keys (Prophecy)

Dylan Neal’s other band, Botanist, might not be to everyone’s taste (hammered dulcimer black metal anyone?) but it certainly makes a change from listening to a very long line of black-metal-o-likes queuing up to deliver their take on something that… Continue Reading →

Silence In The Snow – Levitation Chamber (Prophecy)

After being the equivalent of a persona non grata for quite some time, goth rock seems to be having a revival at the moment. That’s fine with me, because I like goth rock. New bands from the US seem to… Continue Reading →

Moon Far Away – Athanor Eurasia (Prophecy)

384,400 KM to be precise and yes that is far away. Getting that out the way, here we have some gorgeous folk music from Arkhangelsk Russia to contemplate but it is one where we are told East meets West so… Continue Reading →

Stille Volk – Milharis (Prophecy)

Whatever the view is outside your window it’s time to cast it off and dream of the snow-capped mountains of The Pyrenees.  We are about to venture into the world of Stille Volk and it is an olden one without… Continue Reading →

Bethlehem – Lebe Dich Leer (Prophecy)

1991 The year of Bethlehem’s inception. Since then they have released a plethora of LP’s, splits and EPs. The style within those recordings has whipped between DSBM, Industrial, Black Metal and the outright weird. In 2016 the present incarnation with… Continue Reading →

Valborg – Zentrum (Prophecy)

Well this is a case of not judging a band on one album, that’s for sure. My only encounter with Valborg before this new seventh album was with the German groups 5th one Romantik. I guess that showed the bands… Continue Reading →

Dool – Love Like Blood (Prophecy)

I think it is fair to say that a follow up to Dool’s debut album Here Now, There Then which arrived early 2017 is highly anticipated. It was a magical album and definitely touched a lot of hearts with its… Continue Reading →

Laster – Het Wassen Oog (Prophecy)

Laster, who originate from Utrecht in the Netherlands, are an interesting band. Atmospheric black metal is probably the most mundane description of their music. It is said to have come with elements of avant-garde, post-and jazz rock, art pop and… Continue Reading →

Hexvessel – All Tree (Century Media / Prophecy)

Surely the album title should actually be ‘All Hug A Tree’ but I guess that would have been a bit too obvious even if it is the sort of practice Finnish forest folk Hexvessel do on a daily basis. Not… Continue Reading →

Wöljager – Van’t Liëwen Un Stiäwen (Prophecy)

Marcel Dreckmann has become a bit of an institution over the past decade and his latest project Wöljager is destined to do the growing legend no harm whatsoever. Dreckmann, aka Skald Draugir, is better known for his main band the… Continue Reading →

Sunset in the 12th House – Mozaic (Prophecy)

Chill out music for the metal masses was something I alluded to two weeks ago, almost in jest, when I was reviewing a certain high quality and ethereally inclined funeral doom album. But I was surprised to so quickly come… Continue Reading →

Albums Of The Year 2014

  Pete Woods What a year as far as music was concerned, even if everything else is pretty much shit it is the tonic that keeps us going through it all and there has been no shortage of choice. It… Continue Reading →
